Good stuff

It’s nice to run down the trail and walk back up.

Very crowded in some places. Included the Crystal Pier in my walk. Lot's of places to stop and have an drink/food.

great when it isnt crowded!

Great easy walk!

Great place to find some little gems such as the tree with the insanely big roots! Recommend sneakers for the actual hiking trails.

It’s out and back at the moment. The dam is closed for repairs until October 11th 2018. Great place though!

Good little walk around some local trails. after walking the trails, I went and walked around Baloboa park

Easy walk with the bob stroller. Plenty of places to stop and take in the view.

Nice view and almost flat with frequent breeze I would definitely love to go back

Very beautiful! Isn’t the most nature-esque trail, but it’s as good as it gets for Southern California. It does have really incredible views of downtown, the Coronado bridge and sailboats. Definitely a must-do!

Nearly completely flat paved trail. Perfect for a recovery run. Gets crowded later in the am on the weekends.

I decided to go to Cabrillo Monument and spend the afternoon there. I was interested in walking the Bayside Trail. It was a very pretty walk seeing Downtown San Diego and Tijuana in the background. The walk down was easy but walking up was a little tougher that made me break out a little sweat. It was nice going down 1 mile and back up 1 mile. Personally I enjoyed it because of the nice views and light ocean breeze. I will definitely do it again.

A very relaxing hike. The 5 mile distance will give you a nice exercise.

I used the directions from the app and found a sign in the parking lot with a map. I wanted to do trail #12 and tried to follow the directions to the trail. I walked around the park for an hour before finding what might have been the trail but it was so secluded I didn’t feel safe going on it alone so I turned around and went to my usual walk in Encinitas. The park itself is nice with very nice tennis courts and several areas to relax and have a picnic. I just really wish there were better signs to show you where you are and where you’re headed.

This is in a national park and you have to pay to get in. I wish I would have read this before driving out here without money on me. Maybe another day.

Peaceful trail with breathtaking views. Information signs about local wildlife and a few WWII-era structures keep the trail interesting, as do the natural surroundings themselves. I saw birds, bees, and even a small snake slithering across the trail. And the exposed yellow sandstone in one spot is really pretty. The all-downhill, then all-uphill factor makes it exhausting near the end, and I don't care for the very upper part that's just a paved road. But the bottom part of the trail is lovely. As for being wheelchair/stroller friendly, I wouldn't consider this trail to be suitable for either one. There is a short, paved panoramic loop behind the lighthouse that is accessible, but personally I wouldn't bring my stroller on this trail. I did bring my 2-year old twins with me but preferred to carry them both for short stretches rather than push 2 kids in a stroller uphill for a mile. And one more thing to consider: be prepared for no shade. I went on a cloudy morning, and it was perfect!

Super easy trail to either walk or bike. Pathways are plenty wide for most of the trail, but be courteous of walkers if you're biking. Likewise, don't hog the trail if you're in a group. Parking is usually plentiful, and there are a lot of place to have a meal afterwards nearby.

It’s a very pretty trail around the lake. It’s completely flat the entire route. It can be very busy on the weekends, so the earlier you start, the better

Paved trail running the length of Harbor Island. Made for a good walk/jog with my stroller. Only negative is that it parallels the road. But it's great to be so close to the water, and the views of the bay from downtown to Point Loma are spectacular.

Very short but beautiful hike. No shade at all so on sunny hot days bring your shade with you. It’s an out and back that is all down hill out and uphill back. Then you have to add the road that you hike down that you then get to hike back up to the lighthouse. It’s all good in the end. The views are spectacular and worth the workout. Benches are placed along the trail so you can take a rest if you need to. Bring water!

Amazing ! It’s a must

The trail has a paved path and also a regular trail path. Gets too crowded after 9 on weekends.

Nice walking trail with beautiful water views. It's all uphill on the way back. I found stopping to read the information signs helpful for rest breaks as needed. Note, it does cost $15 to access the park via car but the pass is good for 1 week.

Great views of San Diego!! Don’t think is wheel chair friendly at all! I was pushing my son (about 40 pounds) in a jogger stroller and it was a little bit challenging uphill. It was a great workout after all.
